Simon Ings is a novelist, science writer and occasional wildlife cameraman. The Eye was written in between the birth of his daughter (who makes several appearances in the text) and expeditions to Ladakh, Arabia's Empty Quarter, and Arctic Norway. His science features and interviews have featured on national radio and in magazines as diverse as New Scientist, Wired and Dazed and Confused. He lives in London.Review:
'A real eye-opener' The Times 'A rich and eclectic survey, with an intriguing nugget on almost every page' Sunday Telegraph 'A pleasure to read ... His prose style is excellent and he covers and astonishing amount of ground. If you want to know the reason for tears, how to tell if someone fancies you, and why the grass does, in fact, appear greener on the other side of the fence, all the answers are contained inside the covers of this book' Literary Review 'An agglomeration of ideas and themes ... Ings knows the value of the genuinely arresting piece of information. The "wow" factor is consistently high ... richly enjoyable' Spectator
